Better of with Bismuth for that weight.
Any info on when Kent is coming out with a new Bismuth load?
Kent bismuth was on the shelves at cabelas last time I was there. Are they redesigning that line?
Kent has plans next year to bring out a 25 round box of bismuth shells that will be competitive with premium steel. They are designing a new manufacturing process for bismuth shot.
I could go out in the shop and open an old 1 1/8oz #2 original hevisteel. But I did it when I bought them. 40% #4/50% #2/10% B is what is in the #2 marked shells.
Well there you have it. Either nobody complained bout it back then, or (and I suspect this is closer to the truth) my memory is failing me again.
I would think for certain it would depend on the company making the shell and the composition of the Bismuth being used.
My early experience with Bismuth were not good, but I still have and shoot some of the original Hevi-steel (heavier than steel loads), and I do think they are superior to steel. Pellets are a bit oblong, but appear to be generally "roundish" and sized basically correctly (as compared to actual Hevi-shot which comes in a variety of sizes and shapes).
Haven't patterned any (yet) from the box of 12 gauge, 2 2/4", 1 1/16 ounce of #4's purchased last week. Did use it (two rounds) on birds this morning. It works the same as the original product. That is it for now.
